Nestled amid majestic scenery, the 5-star Lough Eske Castle Hotel is a place of true Donegal welcome with every aspect of the hotel knitted into the fabric of the people and the area – and is also the perfect location for the Donegal Women in Business Network Looking Back, Moving Forward Conference.


On 1st October, Donegal Women in Business Network celebrate their 20th anniversary with an amazing line up of guest speakers at their Looking Back, Moving Forward conference at Lough Eske Castle, Donegal Town.

Early bird tickets are on sale now through Eventbrite.


20 years of a voluntary, peer support network, connecting and growing women in business in Donegal is certainly something to celebrate.


Not just for the self-employed, this event welcomes everyone in the community who wants to network, connect, grow and gain knowledge and inspiration throughout the event.


The line-up of accomplished keynote and panel speakers (all Donegal based!) have been chosen from throughout the county to relate to you and your business, regardless of whatever sector or level you are it. Whether you run the business from your kitchen table, or a suite of offices and company boardroom, or you are just at a new start-up stage, this event celebrates you all.


Our master of ceremonies on the day is a local Donegal celebrity and business woman Ciara Doherty, who is the co-anchor on Ireland AM on Virgin Media One, Ireland’s number one breakfast show.


Our keynote speakers for the day are an inspiration for their great achievements and how they mentor and inspire future women in business in our county and beyond.

So why should you take a day away from your business to attend Looking Back, Moving Forward Conference 2019?

You need to be there to network, find customers, ask questions, feel inspired, learn, regain focus and realise that everyone feels like you do and that everyone in business has the same concerns and issues. But most of all you need to come along to feel pride in what you have achieved and share your goals for the future with over 150 people in the room who want to help you achieve them!

Also, on the day each attendee will receive a free copy of the Donegal Women in Business Network’s 20th anniversary celebratory book which has been compiled by voluntary members of the Network.

A day to remember!
